Respected students aspiring for Medical Education in Georgia,
The East European University joins the statement of the Georgian universities, in particular Tbilisi State Medical University, regarding the non-objective information published by the Indian Embassy in Yerevan on September 15, 2022, namely “Advisory to Indian Students Seeking Admission in Georgia’’.
The information published by the Embassy of India in Yerevan contains inaccuracies and misinformation. It does not correspond to the medical education practice in Georgia and, in general, serves to mislead those who seek to study medicine in Georgia. We believe this is a conscious attempt to put another country (in our opinion, Armenia) in an advantageous position on the market, While the quality of education in Georgia is outstanding in the region and recognized in Europe and worldwide. Georgian Universities are authorized and all MD programs are accredited by the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement of Georgia, which is a member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
Moreover, the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement of Georgia (NCEQE) is registered in the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education – EQAR (https://www.eqar.eu/register/agencies/agency/?id=59) and is the first quality enhancement agency in Eastern Europe, which received recognition from the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME). NCEQE is also a member of several high-ranking international and European quality assurance organizations.
Before the corrected advisory is officially delivered to the Indian Embassy in Yerevan by the government of Georgia, we provide the clarification and correct information to the questions addressed in the document published by the Indian Embassy in Yerevan on September 15, 2022:
